    Last Home game of the season V Partick

    I could put up with the inconvenience if the Pars actually made some money from it - and please don't anyone tell me they do, because they will almost certainly make a net loss, when the drop in income from pay on the day fans is factored in.

    CL Tonight

    An interesting BBC article on Spurs CL opponents tonight:- https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51475532 They appear to arouse the same sort of animosity/antipathy in Germany, as Man City are currently experiencing in England. Just another green-eyed monster?

    CL Tonight

    You've summed it up rather well, SP. ☺ It was a decent enough game, but I think I'd have enjoyed the other game more, as it appeared more open in the highlights. Liverpool will feel they can turn it around at Anfield, but I fancy they'll get a harder game than they got from Barca, last season. Atletico will fight and scratch for everything whereas some of the Barca players maybe thought the tie was over.....

    I think he's been watching videos of our very own Lee Zidane. 😃

    North West Stand

    I stood on the NW terracing for almost 30 years until the seats were put in, at which point I emigrated to the Main Stand. 😌 Nowadays, my back would kill me if I had to stand for almost 2 hours...

    CL Tonight

    Your first impressions, like mine, were correct, Vinnie. I saw the highlights of the BVB-PSG game afterwards and it looked far more entertaining, although I realise highlights can be misleading. Haaland the next big, rising star?

    CL Tonight

    We've finally arrived at the stage when the CL becomes interesting and hopefully, exciting, because it's now played like the old European Champions Cup - a straight knockout competition. In spite of UEFA's best efforts to keep the bigger clubs apart with their Wimbledon style seeding system, the last 16 has thrown up some very interesting ties. Tonight we have Atletico v Liverpool and BVB v PSG. Would love to watch both but will reluctantly plump for the Liverpool game, because I'm familiar with their players, but have a feeling the game in Dortmund may turn out to be a better spectacle.

    North West Stand

    That has to be a given, S'ally. If it looks superb and attractive to an auld fossil like me, I can't see how it could fail to attract some of our younger fans who still have a good singing voice. 😀

    How Proper Fitbaw is Played

    I saw that the game at Ibrox was called off yesterday and has been rescheduled for today although Livi would have preferred it to be played tomorrow. I wonder how this would have panned out if Therangers wanted to play on Monday and Livi today? Looking on the bright side, if it does go ahead today and we get some more heavy rain, we might get a game similar to the one I posted at the top of this thread. Keyser will be going into meltdown mode.... 😀

    Run in

    I see we've got 5 games in 15 days. How well we do in this tough, demanding spell, could define our season. Are the fixtures drawn up by a computer? How the feck do we always seem to have to travel up to Inverness for the last game, or is it just an imaginary of my figment?

    How Proper Fitbaw is Played

    Ah, you don't do irony, Keyser? And if you're going to quote me, at least get it right. The thread is titled 'proper fitbaw.' The use of the the upper class English adjective together with the vernacular Scots should have alerted you immediately that my post was tongue in cheek.
  13. Let's hear no more pleas for summer fitbaw. Enjoy. O fútbol da terra (@camposgallegos) tweeted at 8:59 pm on Sun, Feb 09, 2020: Batallas en el barro.

    Jackie MacNama in hospital after collapse

    Get well soon, Jackie. You will always be a Par to us.
  15. With no game this Saturday or next, I've dusted down my crystal ball and had a peer inside. Things were a bit misty, so it may not turn out to be 100% accurate, but here's what I think I saw. The Pars go on a wee run to finish 3rd behind Dundee United and ICT, with Dundee just edging Ayr out of 4th spot. The Pars see off both Dundee and ICT to reach the play off final, where we meet Hearts. (Accies are relegated) Nobody gives us a chance after a late equaliser gives the Jambos a rather fortunate 1-1 draw in the first leg at EEP. At Tynecastle, we are the better team and take a first half lead. After the break, we continue to dominate, but miss two good chances to double our lead. The game turns on its head in the 80th min, when our goalie is harshly adjudged to have fouled a Hearts forward, resulting in a red card and a penalty. (Had VAR been in use, it would have shown that there was no contact and the dirty Jambo dived. ☹) Hearts converted the pen and found a winner in stoppage time as our brave young team ran out of steam. At the bottom, Alloa are relegated to be replaced by the wee team and our favourite team from Grangemouth overcome QOS in the play off final. So no Hearts in the Championship next season, but a good league, similar to the one in 2011, when we finished ahead of our derby rivals to clinch the title. Nothing wrong with a bit of deja vu.....
